Kamogawa River, Kyoto

4.2
#1 of 18 in Nature in Kyoto
Get away from it all on the banks of Kamogawa River, a river flowing from the mountains northwest of the city, and running right through town. With areas of cherry blossoms, green banks, and bridges acting as meeting places for young lovers, the river provides a welcome and varied place to evade the crowds and listen to the flowing water. See how the river interacts with the city in the more developed areas, with its waters becoming central to a number of shrines and pleasant gardens.

  • Training of 12 km along the banks of this river was really nice ... you have a different view of Kyoto, lot's of people walking, cycling, fishing, draws ... worth at least let us at least a walk!

  • Sight and sound of Kamogawa River in Kyoto. Taking a walk along the riverside and enjoying the waterfront view of the traditional Japanese houses perching in the river bank.  more »
  • Ponto-Cho neighborhood has breath and in walks in. It was like during the summer festivals in the Riverside shop cold beer drinking.
